Vance Joseph: ‘We gave Raiders’ offense too much respect’

It was earned respect, but Joseph admitted on Orange and Blue Radio that the Broncos’ backend defense played too soft. Vance Joseph knows what went wrong with the defense on Sunday. Call it the Aretha Franklin Effect. Too. Much. R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the Raiders’ offense. “We gave those guys a lot of respect. ...It was earned respect, but we can’t play that way because we’re not built to play that way,” coach Vance Joseph told Dave Logan on Orange and Blue Radio’s First & 10 @ 10 podcast. “We have a great pass rush. The two times we made [Derek Carr] hold the ball, we actually...

Raiders week two report card vs Broncos

Often times in sports it’s not how you start but how you finish. If any of you have spent time in a football locker room you will hear things from the coach like, “We need to compete for 60 minutes,” or “Let’s finish.” Yesterday on the road in Denver, the Oakland Raiders had the opportunity to close the door on a Broncos comeback attempt but were unsuccessful. The Raiders now fall to 0-2 and find themselves in the basement of the AFC West division. Let’s look at the Raiders report card for week two.

Jon Gruden says he does not regret trading Khalil Mack, hopes to prove long term Raiders ‘did the right thing’

It’s been a little over two weeks since the Raiders unexpectedly traded star pass rusher Khalil Mack, but for Jon Gruden the questions just keep on coming. Standing at the podium after a heart-breaking 20-19 loss to the Broncos, Jon Gruden was asked what the Raiders have to do to get a pass rush going. After a long pause, with a blank stare Gruden responded, “We gotta do something.” Meeting with members of the media in his usual Monday press conference, Gruden was once again asked if he had any regrets on the trade, considering the lack of pass rush in both games. “No, it doesn’t...

Silver & Black Pridecast: Observations and thoughts on Raiders week two loss in Denver

It was another late collapse for the Raiders in week two, as the Raiders fall to 0-2 on the season. This one game in heartbreaking fashion as the Raiders were shutting out the Broncos 12-0 at halftime and even scored a touchdown in the third quarter. But in the end the Broncos were able to climb back in it and drive for the game winning field goal in the waning seconds to win 20-19. Here’s our early reactions to that performances.

Week two snap counts vs Broncos: Lack of depth on the D line proves costly

The Jon Gruden 2.0 era is not off to an ideal start in 2018. This is the first time a Raiders team led by Jon Gruden started the season 0-2. The Raiders have been competitive at times but have dug themselves into a hole that they must now get out off. With the injuries to Justin Ellis and PJ Hall, the Raiders bolstered the defensive line with the additions of free agents Johnathan Hankins and Clinton McDonald. Both were forced into action after spending less than a week with the team along with last week’s waiver wire pickup, Brian Price. Clinton McDonald led all defensive tackles in...

Broncos fight through bad play for huge comeback win, big confidence boost

Offense dug deep and defense held strong to pull out a victory in spite of slow start. Von Miller has a new nickname for his quarterback. Case Key-Man. Well, he’s trying to make it a nickname. “That’s our guy, ‘The Case Keeman.’ I love that guy,” Miller said. “I know his name is Keenum. It was just a joke. Nobody laughed, but it’s all good.” What wasn’t a joke was how key Keenum actually was to the comeback in the second half yesterday. “[Raiders] played good football in the first half, and we didn’t. We had to be more aggressive — take more shots down the field...

There was one important takeaway from the Broncos win over the Raiders

The Broncos had several big moments in their game against the Raiders, but they did one thing right that led to their victory. The Denver Broncos came away with a big time comeback win over the Oakland Raiders. Beating a division rival is always important, but this win was extra sweet. Most fans went into the game thinking it would be an easy win. It wasn’t, but as Ian St. Clair and I said on the MHR Radio Podcast, it said a lot about this team. The #Broncos were able to turn things around in the second half vs the #Raiders, allowing Denver to overcome adversity for a big win. On the...

Recap: Broncos led furious comeback against Raiders

The Denver Broncos took the lead for the first time against the Oakland Raiders with six seconds left in the game. Brandon Perna of That’s Good Sports broke down the game in this video. The Denver Broncos overcame poor play in the first half and poor officiating in the second half to defeat the Oakland Raiders 20-19 to go 2-0 on the season. Case Keenum is proving he has some of that classic John Elway moxie when it comes making the play when the game is on the line with his second game-winning drive of the season. He hasn’t been pretty to start the season, but winning in the NFL never...

Scenes from the Broncos comeback win over the Raiders

Here were the best shots from the Denver Broncos 20-19 comeback win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 2. The Denver Broncos were down 19-10 late in the fourth quarter in a dismal home game against the Oakland Raiders up until that point. Then came the magic. Then came the win. Case Keenum drove the Broncos the length of the field to convert a fourth down quarterback sneak for a touchdown with about five minutes left in the game, then after a defensive stop, Keenum drove the Broncos down the field again capping the drive with a short pass to a wide open Tim Patrick who streaked down the...

Raiders lose 20-19 to Broncos on last-minute field goal

DENVER — Holding a two-point lead with less than two minutes remaining, a Raiders defense that had shut out the Broncos for the first half Sunday took the field needing one more stop. “We have a chance to shut them” down, linebacker Derrick Johnson said. “As a defense, we’ve got to be licking our chops and saying, ‘Hey, let’s go. Here we go.’” Instead, it was the Broncos who went 62 yards in 10 plays, driving from their 20-yard-line to set up a 36-yard field goal by Brandon McManus in a 20-19 win that that sunk the Raiders to 0-2 to start the second Jon Gruden era.

Broncos vs. Raiders: Tim Patrick secures our game ball for game-breaking catch

We spread the game ball love around, but no play was bigger than Tim Patrick’s catch with less than 20 seconds remaining to setup the field goal and the win for the Denver Broncos. The Denver Broncos were down 12-0 at halftime, then down 19-10 late in the fourth quarter. Then Case Keenum took over. In his final two drives, he led the Broncos to a touchdown and then a last second field goal to secure the 20-19 win over the Oakland Raiders. With a fury of a comeback like that, there will certainly be some game balls to give out for this one. Let’s start things off with the man who made...
